I woke with a startle to find the bed empty next to me I sat up and got out of the bed and pulled on some clothes.
Leaving the tent and looking into the faces of the people who hardly knew me yet were taking care of me and making me feel at home, well for the most part Josh and his mate were still not talking to me, Josh had saved me and had not spoken to me since he had however acknowledged me several times with a slight nod and a small smile.
I wandered my way over to Tristan's mothers tent and peeked inside to see if she was sitting drinking coffee or something but I couldn't see her.
“looking for me?” I jumped slightly at the sound of her voice and turned around “I was just getting some things for you for the big night” she said and then opened the tent for me and I went inside before her.
“Tristan said you were going to go over everything so that I know” I was mesmerized by her tent the purples were beautiful there was a nice carpet on the floor, by far way more decorated then Tristan's who’s held a desk a chair and a bed, they moved in a small dresser for my clothes.
“yes I will explain how it will go so no surprises” she smiled sweetly and set down the white cloth on the table. “how are you feeling now that it is getting closer?” she asked
“I'm scared” I admitted and she nodded knowingly and came over to me she took my hand sin hers.
“he will take care of you don’t worry, the worst part will be the change” she said smoothed my hair.
“what if I'm not the one and nothing happens?”
“your the one don’t worry about that dear, now sit and I will go over it from the beginning”
I sat on the chair and she sat on the one in front of me she smiled again and then dove into the prophecy.
“it says that alpha third generation will find a human woman whos wolf side is stored in her DNA dormant until the love and bite of the third generation. We are unclear on what will all happen but it is belived that ones born of you and Tristan will be able to mate with human men and woman not just the changed and ones born with the gene, so the pack will grow and become stronger”
“that is what Helen said”
“now when you are getting ready you have to be dressed in either white or black white is for purity but black is as well just depends on who you talk to so either one will be fine, I have taken the liberty of buying some articles for you to wear, and before you say no remember you have to entice my son to make him want you more then he already does so...” she stood and walked to the closet and pulled out a black and white lingerie short dress and then another set of two which were also Identical except for the color it was a simple lace panties and bra and a small cover up that buttoned up in the middle.
“if none are to your liking I can buy some more”
“no the dress is fine” I said and stood taking the black on in my hands and feeling the silky texture, this was really going to happen.
“now you will walk to the area with the stones I believe you saw them when Tristan was taking you home, things will already set up there will be a candle for each part, water, earth, fire and wind, and I have taken the liberty of buying a new white sheet to go on the ground I don’t want you cutting yourself on the sharp pine needles or something” she laughed and pointed at the white cloth on the table
“that was nice of you” I said nervously
“okay so you will enter the area where Tristan will be sitting or standing already he will take your hand and bring you into the circle, you will go to your knees and he to his and you have to wait till he feels the first signs of the change the full moon forces on him then things will proceed he will mate you and then claim you as his he will bite you his change will be very close but he has to bite you before his change do you understand that?”
“after that you will start to feel the change start to happen and as you change he will help you through it, after you are finished then he will take you on your first run” she clapped her hands together “ and it should all work out perfectly!” she said and I gave a nervous laugh.
Yes it sounded simple but I had a feeling the lines between pain and pleasure were going to collide with a passion.
Everyone was tense you could feel it in the air it was literally thick enough to slice with a knife.
I wandered, I was getting very good at wandering the grounds without being noticed, my nerves were shattered into a million tiny pieces.
I jumped at the sound of a beautiful voice and turned to my left.
“There is a stream down that hill over there” she pointed to the far side of the camp “the water runs warm it is where most of us go to bath and shower under the waterfall, I know Tristan has been getting water for you to wash in the tent but I always preferred the running water” Josh’s mate was the most beautiful creature I have ever seen and what shocked me more was that she was speaking to me as she carried a basket with bread in it.
“oh that sounds divine I'm getting a little tired of sponge baths” I laughed and she joined in
“yes I do as well, no one ever seems to remember the stream except us woman the men are way to manly to ever be caught bathing in warm water they much rather just go to the freezing pool to prove something” her laughed was like music and it made me smile.
“yes well I have seen them and they are all rather manly aren’t they?” she giggled then pulled off grey towel and handed it to me from the clothes line.
“go I will tell Tristan where you are if he asks but he wont be back from patrol for the next few hours they are making a bigger parameter for tonight”
“well don’t mind me if I sneak away for a bit!”
“here take this as well, it is biodegradable so it wont be any harm if you use it in the river” she said handing me a bottle of soap.
Oh I was in heaven a bath... a shower!!
I gave her a smile and started the walk to the river.
It wasn't a very long walk but the trees were thick and the sound of rushing water filled the air I glanced around feeling eyes on me but I couldn't spot anyone. I stripped off my shirt and pushed down my jean shorts kicking off my hiking boots.
I walked to the deep pool glancing around again, then dove in the hot water covering my skin and soothing away all worries and aches.
I surfaced near the other end of the pool and wiped my face of the water and smoothed my hair pulling it to the side so it was out of my face and the water stopped dripping.
I could still feel the stare, the eyes on me but I couldn't see a thing in the dark forest the moss covered trees. Then out of the shadows I saw the green eyes the black silhouette of a black wolf, stalking in the dark, but who was staring at me... Tristan... I brought my hands up covering my chest.
He stalked closer his head down low to the ground then rose up in the air and smelled then I saw the shiver run over his shoulders and watched as his form shifted and then Tristan stood there in the flesh his skin dirty and his hair messed. He was glorious.
“what are you doing out here Sara?” he asked and shivered again and flexed his arms shaking off the tremor that went through his body from the shift.
“I am washing” I stated and went deeper in the water to hide my nakedness but the way his eyes looked at me and then down I had a feeling the water was clear and he got some obscure vision of my body.
I kept my eyes fixed to his face but I wanted to let my eyes wander down the length of his body but I couldn't bring myself to do so.
“may I join you?” he asked and I swallowed and gave a slow nod
Did I want him to hell yes! Was I sure it was a good idea.... no
He came into the water and came over to me, his eyes were full of raging passion and lust was evident.
I backed up my back coming up on the bank of the waters edge and he kept advancing and I had no where to go so when he was less then a foot away from me he reached out and touched my bottom lip.
“how you tempt me” he whispered and I swallowed hard.
“please don’t “ I said and he smiled and it made my heart seize and my legs got tight and my core boil.
“yet again you are saying no but your body says a different story” his hands went under the water and snaked up my waist in which I shivered and wished I could get away I wasn't sure I wanted this... I was confused about so many things right now he clouded all my thoughts, but I wasn't to be soiled before the ritual... would it make a difference?
One of his hands went down the other up and I was to shocked and confused to say anything to stop him.
“I know the rules but one taste wouldn’t make a difference” he whispered and leaned forward catching my earlobe between his teeth then kissing my neck slowly seductively, agonizingly.
His hand traveled up to my breast and cupped it giving it a firm but tender squeeze as he came closer his other hand started going farther down tracing lines on my thighs and going dangerously close to my sex which was begging for him to caress but he danced his fingers over my flesh elsewhere.
His mouth claimed mine and possessed me like no other man had ever done so he was possessive but loving and tender, made my body ache for him, my ever cell called to him.
“oh god” I breathed when he pulled away and kissed the curve of my neck once more
“iv been called worse things” he said and then his searching fingers found what they were looking for and I moaned out loudly his mouth capturing mine again in a slow passionate kiss, his thumb circled my clit and my body jerked his finger slid into me and yet another moan came from my lips and I was already teetering on the edge of climax.
“Tristan oh my god” my hands went to his shoulders and my nails dug in as he pumped his finger in and out of me then added a second and I tilted my head back his hand that was massaging my breast snaked its way up and held the back of my neck keeping me to him as he continued his earth shattering assault.
“What are you doing!” I yelped at the sound of his mother voice and he growled out loudly as he took his hands from me but didn’t turn around to where his mother was standing glaring at us.
The growl had yet to cease that vibrated from Tristan's chest.
“You have no business here mother” he snapped and she laughed
“you snivelling child, you better watch who you are speaking to, I am not one of your pack mates you can order around” she snapped and Tristan whipped around and I barley saw him stalk up to his mother and she didn’t back down as he stared her down.
“I am pack leader you are part of my pack whether you like it or not!”
“You are nothing but a bitch in heat I gave you rules and here you are fucking her!”
Tristan was taller and very threatening but his mother just stood there, but he was fuming and I knew by the set of his shoulders that he knew she was going to back down sooner or later.
“I suggest you get back to your tent and stay there” he said calmly and it made me cringe with fear it had enough ice to chill the warmest person.
“your father had the same arrogance and look where it got him”
“the only mistake my father made was letting you live” Tristan snapped
“you will regret saying that, your father died trying to protect this pack from the rouges and you will never be able to do it, you are going to fail whether you have that bitch with you or not”
Well I see it is all sugar and smiles to my face but other times I am a bitch! Well I was fuming I crossed my arms over my chest, it wasn't my place to bitch her out....
She stalked off and left Tristan and I speechless . Well that was un called for I wasn't going to let things go any further... maybe...
“Tristan i-“ he cut me off
“you shouldn't have had to hear it like that” he said and turned to me and sighed running his hand through his hair and I swallowed hard I wasn't lost to the fact he stood there naked steam rose off his body into the air and his skin was still wet, his abs and chest perfectly fit and arms strong enough to kill someone yet hold me forever.
“we shouldn't have let things go so far” I said lamely
“I should have gone the other way when I caught your scent in the air, but I didn’t, and when I saw you walking towards the water and stripping off your clothes...” he trailed off I didn’t need any more explanation.
“so full moon is tonight” I said and he nodded slowly and kept his eyes on me I wanted to put my clothes on but that would mean me having to walk right by him naked and I don’t think either one of us could let me do that.
“it is a powerful moon tonight I can feel it already and it is only mid morning, it will be good for your change” he said and came closer to me and then came into the water again I was tempted to throw my arms around him but I just went to the edge of the water grabbed the soap and turned my back to him I was going to wash my hair.
“are the rouges –“ he cut me off again
“they wont be anywhere near us tonight my pack is making sure of that. Let me” he said and came up behind me he took the little bottle and squirted some onto his hand and i tilted my head back he massaged and rubbed the soap into y hair, I moaned as his fingers worked their magic.
“you aren’t all scary you know” I said and I heard his huff out a chuckle and it made me smile
“you should fear me, you should have feared me from the beginning” he said and rinsed my hair I turned to face him pulling my hair to the side ringing some of the water out of it.
“I was never really scared of you”
“just scared of what I could do to you, will do to you” he said and I shivered but not from the cold
“you are intense” I admitted he cracked a smile
“you are soft and fragile, everything that I want I don’t want to break you” he said and took my hand and caressed my fingers as if they were glass.
“I'm not that fragile” I said and he smiled shaking his hand
“yes you are, the change wont affect that either you are just always going to be and I will be there to protect you”
“can you kiss me?” I asked and his eyes smouldered and my knees went weak as he took the half a step towards me and pulled me to him brushing his lips across mine then firmly planting them against my lips kissing me softly, it grew but he pulled away before we got out of hand.
“will it always be like that?”
“like what?” he asked and ran his thumb over my bottom lips looking at my mouth
“like, how I want to wrap my arms around you and make love to you, forever” I said my cheeks burned slightly
“you missed how I want to make you scream my name, I hope it will last” he said and both our heads turned to the sound of a howl and he sighed pulling himself out of the water again and he gave me a meaningful glance back over his shoulder before he shifted and a black wolf was standing there and he bolted into the trees.
Oh dear lord, I mentally slapped myself I was acting like my sister! Someone who I praised for being forward and happy for her if she was happy in her life but I wasn't one to go out and proclaim my lust for someone and who went out and practically tripped her way through life, I had a planned life in which I executed excellently most of the time.
I washed off my body quickly and then got dressed.
Okay the next chapter is going to be the good one!! Being full moon and all =P.
